Hail to all who celebrate the advent of Earth’s successive seasons! Here in the Northern Hemisphere we enjoy the Fall’s arrival, bringing its harvest bounties, cool evenings and the glorious leaves ablaze with vivid color. Those in the Southern Hemisphere greet Spring’s warmth conquering the frigid Winter as Nature rouses from stasis to surge forth with renewed vigor.
All who enjoy vital existence embrace these seasonal pivot points for we are consonant with the majestic cycles of our precious, fragile island in space. We offer humble respect and seek an ever-deepening understanding of our beautiful and dreadful Earth. May the new season herald an abundance of joy!
Here in the Haunted Hudson Valley, we rejoice as the tenebrous Halloween season rushes towards us. Chill breezes waft falling leaves swirling through the lengthening nights, as soon Samhain will sweep us up in its dark mysteries!
